Expert skiers and riders have extra terrain this year at Telluride with full access off west Gold Hill Ridge. Gold Hill Chutes Two through Five will now be available to add more challenging, expert terrain on some steep couloirs. The ten Gold Hill Chutes have gradually opened over the past two years. Chutes Two through Five are above treeline and have a steep drop of 1,600 vertical feet. They are wide open couloirs that have long been a favorite of extreme skiers. Telluride has added two WWII-era howitzers to help control the terrain, which will open as conditions allow.

Telluride has focused on terrain expansion in their ongoing mountain improvements. The resort opened Revelation Bowl and the Revelation Lift, along with two new restaurants, in the last five years.
